Fellow xangans mentioned a couple of things that have been on my mind. One is friending. I got a friend request yesterday from Unyk. Just now, looking up the link for you I discovered that I can also access it in English, but I was approached in French and when I sign in, I get […]

There is a pattern sale at Hancock’s today: McCall’s patterns are 99 cents apiece and Vogue patterns are $3.99 each. I don’t need any new patterns, because I haven’t yet sewn the SWAP I planned last year at this time. I haven’t even done the buttonholes on my Rosie the Riveter shirt or determined the […]

Just back from my interview, with the Wednesday classes ahead, and I can’t settle back down to work. I met with the owner of the franchise, and quite liked him. He asked me what my life goals were, and I did not say, “Hell, I don’t know!” so I get points right there. Actually, I […]

It isn’t lonely, working from home. The Empress and That Man came over yesterday, as did Elkhorn. I have a meeting today about the job I’m planning to turn down. Tomorrow I have a dental appointment and a meeting with Client #2 and one of his clients, for whom I’m going to write some content. […]

I didn’t do the buttonholes last night, but I did make some jewelry. I had made some jewelry already, a month or two ago, and then a sad thing happened. I had all the earrings I had made,and also all the ones that I owned before I made any, in a compartmentalized box. I took […]

Hmm… As some of you know, I was writing a blog for the store I worked for. It was called “Dexter’s Discoveries.” After the store closed, I didn’t shut down the blog because it had new subscribers on most days and thousands of visitors a week and was at the top of Google for various […]

Here’s my Hawaiian shirt with all the hemming done. This is Folkways’ “Rosie the Riveter” shirt. I’ll get the buttons and buttonholes done tonight and wear it all through August, in spite of Chanthaboune’s strictures. Chanthaboune and I worked on the book audition yesterday. It should have gone in before now, really. It’s not that […]

   #2 son came home from Governor’s School in a state of advanced fatigue, and having learned a few things. Some had to do with political structures in developing countries, but the first thing he told me was that 17 year old girls know the words to Disney movies. I already knew this, of course. […]

I need a new role model. First, let me tell you about yesterday. I got up at 3:00, because I was awake, so I was able to get four blogs updated by 7:00 a.m. when #2 daughter came onto my buddy list. It’s like shift work. Normally, my local Computer Guy is on the list when […]

Yesterday’s interview was much like the others. The new people I met had multi-page reports on me with full-color covers, but one remarked that she hadn’t seen my resume, so that was a little mysterious. No one offered to let me see the reports. Nor did we get down to brass tacks financially, but they […]
